Daniel Sheridan Wilson, likely named for his grandfathers, was born in the Chittick house at 515 Gaines Street in Stuart May 21, 1923.
He was Clabe and Leora Wilson’s sixth child, named for his grandfathers, Daniel Ross Wilson and Milton Sheridan Goff (called “Sherd.”)
Clabe Wilson was the Stuart nightwatchman during those years, which was a concern since the one right before him had been killed in a bank robbery attempt.
Danny was a baby when the family moved to a farm near Dexter later that year. Darlene is on the left, then nearly five-month-old Danny, and Dale, October 7, 1923.
Bricks at the restored Stuart Depot remember Danny’s birth, as well as older twins Dale and Darlene. One remembers their father’s years as the nightwatchman.
Danny is one of the Wilson brothers remembered on the Dallas County Freedom Rock. All five served. Only two came home. He was KIA and is buried in France.
